I've run into a real dilemma. I own a reflex/deflex long bow by martin(savannah). I'm terribly confused as to the amo length. The amo on the bow is marked 62, however I had purchased 2 strings from different stores, and they were too short. I measured the strings and they were 59" long each, which makes sense as they were marked amo 62. Let me explain, the strings were much too short and when the bow was strung the brace height was not within tolerance of the manufacturers specs.(6.25-7"). What am I doing wrong? From my understanding the actual string length should be 3" shorter than the amo length marked on the bow......or at least this is how things work out with my two other recurve bows. Does the fact that its a long bow have an impact on the length of the string in relation to the amo???????Please help me out on this one, deer season is around the corner here in Nova Scotia and I am in need of some answers.
Thank-you in advance
